I know there are a lot of fans of Paige O’Hara (Belle, Beauty and the Beast animated film voice) and Linda Larkin (speaking voice of Jasmine in the animated Aladdin). They will both be part of the popular Give Kids the World Speaker Series on August 3rd, an occasional event which has brought in Disney Legends and other notables. Both O’Hara and Larkin are Disney Legends and this should be a fantastic presentation! Of course, admission benefits Give Kids the World Village, a nonprofit that hosts familes of critically ill children for dream vacations. Read below for more information, and order tickets here. I expect the VIP Package to sell out.
